USA-CLOONEY ARREST - Hollywood movie star George Clooney was arrested at Sudan's embassy's in Washington on Friday during a protest against the country's blockade of humanitarian aid.

Clooney, his father Nick and other anti-Sudan activists ignored three police warnings to leave the embassy grounds and were led away to a Secret Service van in handcuffs.

Clooney told a Senate hearing on Thursday that Washington must get tough on Sudan President Omar al-Bashir and two other Sudanese officials indicted by the International Criminal Court as part of an investigation into atrocities in Darfur from August 2003 to March 2004.
